Screenshot of graphical updater

Using the graphical updater I got quite confused about the update referring
to pidgin and finch, when neither is installed (see attached screenshot):

> rpm -qa | grep -i finch
> rpm -qa | grep -i pidgin

Using zypper on the command-line, things become more clear, but it is still
confusing:

> zypper patch
Selecting 'finch-5557.noarch' from repository 'Updates for openSUSE 11.4
11.4-0' for installation.
